ADULT EDUCATION

We seek to offer a wide range of adult education opportunities, including Bible study and discussions of other religions, sustainability, ethics and current issues, faith and science, and the history of the early church. 

Sunday Mornings – on the first Sunday of the month, following a single worship service (see the Calendar), a guest speaker presents a lecture and a discussion in the Fellowship Hall at 11:00 a.m. , followed by lunch at noon.  Guest speakers during 2015-2016 have included professors from Westmont College, California Lutheran University, and Luther Theological Seminary.  During the rest of the month, a range of topics are discussed during education hours at 9:15 a.m. meetings in the Fireside Room in the administration building. Recent topics have included studies of the Old Testament prophets, faith and science, world religions, the use of sacred spaces in Christianity, sustainability and community gardening, chemicals and the environment, and, in the aftermath of a series of horrific shootings, race relations and white privilege.

Women’s Bible Study meets every Thursday at 9:30 a.m. in the Library. The current topic of study is the book of Acts.

Men’s Ministry meets once a month at the home of a member for food, fellowship and Bible Study.

For more information about these ministries please contact the church office at 805-687-1577 or office@telcsb.org and we will direct you to the leader of that ministry.

CARE MINISTRY & PARISH NURSE

The Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church Endowment Fund enables our Church to support many wonderful projects for our Church members and for our community. One important program is Parish Nursing. Sharon Head, RN has served as our Parish Nurse for 18 years.

Sharon spends most of her time listening to personal health stories and counseling individuals and family members on treatments, referrals, and options for supportive care. Many of the issues she is asked about concern diet and exercise, members wondering about a new medication that a doctor has prescribed, care for aging seniors, and supporting those with long term chronic health diseases. She can also help with explaining medical test results. Many families contact her asking about advance health directives – also known as a living will. We all need to make decisions about what actions should be taken if we are no longer able to make decisions ourselves, and Sharon is there to help unravel the legal issues surrounding illness or incapacity. She also can make referrals for caregiving agencies and doctors.

We are fortunate to have a Parish Nurse who is available to members facing every day struggles. Sharon considers Parish Nursing a calling. As she put is: It is when the heart of a person is aching and someone comes along side to let them know they are not alone. So many of us are so very private yet when we can come together and share our joys, our sorrows, our worries and concerns we open ourselves to the healing process. When we reach out and pray together our hearts are lifted, our spirits are strengthened, and our minds are comforted.

How can you get in touch with Sharon? Please feel free contact her any time through email or by leaving a voicemail at the church. Sometimes people just need someone to be a separate listening presence in their busy lives – and Sharon is a good listener! Sharon would welcome your email with health questions! She is a terrific resource for our church. Contact her: careministry@telcsb.org

MEN’S MINSITRY FELLOWSHIP & FAITH BUILDING

Men’s Ministry is a fellowship and faith building activity held the third Tuesday of each month in the home of one of our participants. We start at 6:00 p.m. with a time for fellowship with beverages and snacks. It is a great time for light or deeper conversations than we have time on the patio after church services. Dinner is provided by the host with spirited dinner conversations. Each participant contributes $10 to offset the expenses. From approximately 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. one of the participants leads a bible study. The “leader” (facilitator) picks the text or topic of his choosing and leads the discussion. We conclude with prayer. Attendance is 12 – 16 individuals each meeting.

This group and all men of Trinity are invited to attend the annual Men’s Gathering held at El Camino Pines. The event each fall in September or October. We will car pool to the event on Friday afternoon or early Saturday morning and return Sunday by 1:00 p.m.

The Mission Statement of Trinity’s Men’s Ministry is

“To strengthen the faith and build relationships between men of TELC in order to equip us as spiritual leaders for our families, church, work and community.”

We seek to be purpose not event driven, and relationship based rather than task oriented. Our objectives are to

  1. Assist us learn and practice Christian principles
  2. Foster relationships with other men of TELC
  3. Provide a forum to discuss issued facing Christian men
  4. Support each other in prayer and deed
  5. Become better disciples of Jesus Christ

We welcome and invite any man to come and share in our fellowship and faith building. This includes those from outside out church family.
